Nicole Kidman to attend Expats screening

Nicole Kidman to attend screening at Palace Verona Cinema which she officially opened in 1996 for To Die For.

Nicole Kidman will return to Australia next week for a special advance screening of her new Prime Video series, Expats.

The six-part limited series directed by Lulu Wang and co-executive produced by Kidman, it is based on the best-selling novel The Expatriates by Janice Y. K. Lee.

Star and executive producer, Kidman will attend the special screening at Palace Verona Cinema in Sydney on Wednesday 20 December. Kidman officially opened the Verona Cinema in 1996 for the premiere of the film To Die For. Expats will also be one of the final hurrahs at the venue before it closes in early 2024.

Expats launches globally on January 26, 2024 on Prime Video.

Expats stars Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies, The Undoing), Sarayu Blue (Never Have I Ever, Blockers), Ji-young Yoo (The Sky Is Everywhere, Smoking Tigers), Brian Tee (Chicago Med, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows), and Jack Huston (House of Gucci, Fargo).

Set against the vibrant and tumultuous tapestry of 2014 Hong Kong, Expats centres on three American women—Margaret (Nicole Kidman), Hilary (Sarayu Blue), and Mercy (Ji-young Yoo)—whose lives intersect after a sudden family tragedy. The series interrogates privilege and explores what happens when the line between victimhood and culpability becomes blurred. Brian Tee, who plays Margaret’s husband Clarke, and Jack Huston, who plays Hilary’s husband David, also star in the series.

Lulu Wang (The Farewell) serves as a creator, director, and writer for Expats. Wang also executive produces the series with Daniele Melia for Local Time. Nicole Kidman serves as an executive producer for the series with Per Saari for Blossom Films (Rabbit Hole, Nine Perfect Strangers), along with Australian screenwriter Alice Bell (The Beautiful Lie, The Slap), who was the first writer onboarded to the series. Theresa Park for Per Capita Productions (After Yang, Bones and All) and Stan Wlodkowski (The Old Guard) also serve as executive producers. Vera Miao (Two Sentence Horror Stories), Gursimran Sandhu (Game of Thrones), and author Janice Y. K. Lee served as writers on Expats, with Bell and Wang.
